Our offense is the best "surprise" I've had in years. RGIII's poise, decision-making, arm streng, accuracy, speed/quickness and fakes are extraordinary. My only concern is that he saw contact on a few of those 10 runs. I hope to see him slide and get out of bounds instead. Kyle's play-calling and scheme were nearly perfect and easily his best so far. These guys have chemistry. My favs on Morris the horse and Robinson, though I think as the season progresses Davis will get more work than he did yesterday. Garcon too if he can stay healthy.

Defensively we are a force to be reckoned with. The front 7 is very stout run or pass. I think the secondary is performing at a high level based on great coaching/motivation. These guys play smart and aggressive and will earn a lot of respect from QBs/OCs over the season.
Dont worry about the hits so much - sometimes a guy who hangs in the pocket takes even more punishment. Unlike dumb vick this guy at least tries to get out of bounds and he throws the ball away. He is not at any greater risk than other qb's of getting hit. Maybe even less because of his illusiveness and smarts.

If Grossman could scorch the Giants defense, what do you think RG3 will do to them?

I'm more concerned with the Cowboys and Ravens.
Look at what kind of points the saints gave up at home in the dome last year. Only gave up more than twenty points twice! That defense at home is not a joke.

Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

banks managed a muff and a fumble. I wish his talent translated.

as for the #2, has to be kyle. if garcon stayed in he could have had a 200+ yd day, but he didn't, so kyle, who i've ripped quite often the last two years.

Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

Voted for Gomes, he stepped up and played like a stud when his name was called on. He really filled the void and then some left by Merriweather and Jackson. Hopefully he can keep this up and make us forget about our safety problems.

Honorable mention goes to Sundberg just because what he did was plain awesome, especially after seeing the Raiders long snapping situation tonight. Gotta give a long snapper props whenever you can, they don't get much chance to shine.

Alfred Morris played well, but he didn't do anything that really impressed me. Avergage YPC, but he did have a couple nice runs. I'm just not totally convinced that Helu or Royster wouldn't have done better had they got those touches. Nice to see Morris perform when he got the chance and not screw anything up.

Every QB takes hits in the pocket, often times right after they release the ball. The hits when he was running seemed to be the least harmful ones he took. At least he didn't get his nose busted like Brady

Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

Had to record it as I was out with the In-Laws in Estes Park. Great game. D held up ok against a potent offense. I didn't think we could win in a "shootout" against Brees and Company, but we found a way to put up 40 points. Didn't expect that.

I voted Morris, but there aren't enough game balls to go around. Fletcher saved a TD, Rak saved a TD with a batted ball, Cundiff was solid, O-line was good against an "ok" D-line, receivers stepped up and made plays, secondary was pretty solid with a few mistakes. Overall can't be happier than to go into NO and come away with a W. Great start to the season and LOTS of work still to do.

Not sure if it was mentioned already, but was Cousins the backup? I thought I saw Grossman in street clothes at one point.

Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

Cousins is the back up...which in my opinion...is not smart. Why is Rex on the roster if he is the 3rd string QB? Shanny kinda surprised everybody with that move, I really dont think Cousins outplayed Rex. And I really dont think Shanny is a Rex fan, I think Kyle is the fan and Shanny just over ruled him and said Cousins is the back up.

Re: Redskins at Saints Post Game Thoughts

Have we heard any more about Garcon's injury? They mentioned that it had "lis franc" like symptoms. I will tell you that would be bad, very bad.

I had surgery on that in February, 2011 and it is essentially a torn ligament between the metatarsil bones in your foot. Feels a lot like a bruise until it swells and feels like a sprain. It can also be hard to detect unless you look at the bone structure of both feet. If it's caught early and operated on before the ligament begins to heal in the torn position, it can be fixed but it's not a guarranteed. I waited over six months (tore it in June, 2010) and, a year and half out, my foot is still not the same.

I imagine they have really good Docs who would know what to look for but I haven't heard anything definitive.

I was soooo happy when I read that Rex was put on the inactive list on Sunday!

Cousins is the future and Rex will be gone next season, if not sooner.
Now is the time to work with Cousins and get him ready to play just in case. Rex may know the offense better then any of the three qb's but he is third best at executing it in a real game. Rex throughout his career has been an nonathletic turnover machine. I think Cousins did out play Rex in the preseason even if the stats do not reflect it. Cousins shows more upside and a ton more mobility. In the long run I would rather go with rookie Cousins now as our backup even if it might cost us a game or two early on if god forbid he had to play. Get past that initial learning curve with Cousins and he will play at a higher level than Rex ever played.
